Centuries had passed. The ancient tales were forgotten, lost in the winds of time. Many who knew them died without uttering a single breath of their secrets, their memory too harrowing to endure.
Two and a half thousand years ago, a great cataclysm struck. It reshaped the world, purging its surface of millions of lives. The only evidence that civilisation even existed before this point were tiny clues in buried ruins and the vague remembrance of stories whispered through the generations. One sole word consistently appeared time and again, a single clue of the world that existed before – Nazreal.
That this was once a city was the only certainty, and nothing more. Where it lay, why it disappeared and the fate of its inhabitants remained as myth and speculation. The world had barely escaped from its spiralling plunge into chaos and virtual extinction. Those who survived fought over ancient artefacts unearthed by chance, the promise of old technologies fuel for their battle to remain alive. They were desperate to find out what happened and prevent it from happening again.
While the world was currently stable, its foothold was tentative at best. Tense diplomacy and uneasy peace had reigned for many years now, but fresh arguments and border disputes erupted on a near-daily basis.
But then, something stirred deep at the heart of the world. A new discovery had just been made.
